Just got this today, it's a 2000 model. It's friggin awesome.
I have to admit, its very nice.
that is sweet!!!
Congrats and the great lookin bass. Very cool
that bass, in 4 string version is on top of my wish list together with the Epi Jack casady.
great score man!
Nice sounding, looking and playing bass ya have there. I hope it provides you as many years of tonal pleasure as my Jazz has done for me.
I likey!!! I have not played a bad one of those yet,
Kewl, I absolutely adore black/white/maple P-basses! Plus, the P5 is a nice instrument.
I've been eyeballin those Precision V's too. Really been craving the Fender sound lately But I have no money. So I traded a guitar for a 4 string MIA Jazz. A P V is on my wish list though.
I realized it was rude of me to put a pic of my new bass in your thread so I removed it
I usually don't like the plain white pickgaurds but I think finding a replacement for this one will be difficult. I don't think that Warmoth or pickgaurds.com carries this one.
To everyone else, thanks for your kind comments.
What were you thinking of instead of white? Black for the "stealth" look is always spiffy, but heck, I think white or black pearloid/moto would be cool too.
Go to http://www.pickguards.com that's where I got the replacement for my MIA P-Bass.
I'm thinking white pearliod, but black pearliod would be cool too.
I already looked there, they don't have a 5-string P bass replacement pickguard listed in their standard templates.
Congratulations! I think this bass is one of Fender's best kept secrets. I've played them a few times at GC (every time I see one), and I'd say it's as good as the Roscoe Beck V. The P has more conventional active controls, so it's got a different tonal range, but it's a fantastic-sounding, versatile bass.
Yes sir, I like it.
That's why I bought it. I was looking for a new active 5 and played several at a local store last week. Of all of them I tried I like the P-5 the best. I then went looking for a used one and found this on e-bay:
Turned out to be a local sale for me with the seller living only about 20 miles away. Considering the bass was low milage (no scratches, no fret wear, still has the original OEM battery) and with the stands, case, levy's strap, and cord he threw in with the deal, I think I paid a fair price of $750 for it.
How is the B sting on those basses???
I keep hearing "average" in that it's not a bad B string, but nothing to write home about. Middle of the road and whatnot.
I concur, at least with the strings I have on it now. With some stiffer strings it may be a lot better.
Is that the 9v or 18v setup?
